Twist Yourself Trim
Nothing feels as good as a spinal twist if you’ve been sitting for hours at a desk, in the car or on a plane. But did you know that twists tone your digestive system and your waistline as well as relieving tension in your back muscles?
Twists work the outer core: back muscles, abdominals and obliques. This helps to support movement in the spine as well as toning the tummy and waist area. Twists also help you to keep in shape by creating movement in and around our organs, thus helping food to move along the digestive tract.
Spinal twists are said to be detoxifying because they create heat in the body, thereby increasing our metabolism and allowing us to burn off toxins and excess calories!
In restorative yoga, reclining twists are supported by props and bolsters. This allows us to stay comfortably in the pose for several minutes so that deep release takes place, both in outer muscles as well as internal organs.
A lesson for life, not just for twists…
